Working with fiberglass
« on: January 16, 2009, 11:24:38 PM »
Anyone here ever worked with fiberglass extensively? I want to attempt making fenders for my truck and maybe a new hood depending on how those turn out. I wanna do like a 6" flare with louvers.

Fiberglass is a lot of work to develop a new product. You have to make several molds, have all the equipment, its a lot of work and a big mess. Better left to the pros!



If you're looking for pre-made Off-Road fiberglass you can just order, give our sponsors Custom Tube Works a try! You'll be able to view their inventory on our classifieds soon and their online store should be up soon according to the staff. Give them a call at 760-521-9350 and tell them DesertBoard sent you for special hook-ups!!




Repairing or working with fiberglass isn't so bad, but product development is a whole nother animal!
